The Spider #111 Audiobook
The Spider and the Flame King
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
If you lived in the oil-field city of Piperstown, you’d be afraid to open the door of your own home . . . for nitro hell might explode in your very face. You’d dread stepping on the starter of your car. You’d cringe from opening your own breadbox. You’d know fear — such — as only the wanton cruelty of the Flame King could strike into your heart. And you’d blame the Spider for aiding in these atrocities. ... For the Spider — who fought alone to save life, property, and oil for our war effort — was blamed by the police for every new outrage. And the Flame King rode high on his self-made flood of black gold and red blood.
The Spider was the star of his own pulp magazine for a wild decade bound by 1933 and 1943. Seeing rival pulp house Street & Smith breaking sales records with The Shadow Magazine, Popular Publications president Harry Steeger decided to clone him. He hired mystery novelist and occultist R. T. M. Scott to write The Spider Strikes! and a sequel, The Wheel of Death. Mysteriously, Scott bowed out of the picture around the time of the first issue, dated October, 1933.
Enter Norvell W. Page. Writing under the pseudonym of Grant Stockbridge, he remade the Spider into his own psychic twin, often dressing up as the Master of Men when delivering his monthly manuscripts.
Nick Santa Maria reads The Spider and the Flame King with the crackling intensity you have come to expect of his superb talent. Originally published in The Spider magazine, December, 1942.
